Planet Labs - Artist in Residence
Planet Labs is an SF based aerospace startup that designs, builds, and operates a network of mini-satellites that deliver the most current images of Earth. For a period in 2014 I had the honor of serving as their full-time Artist in Residence.
Through a series of projects I explored how to playfully re-imagine elements of the aerospace industry while injecting imagination and creativity into their office.

Ways of Seeing
